Many people have asked me what a typical week looks like in my work as a rental search agent.

Saturday is my busiest day, with almost all available properties open for inspection on this day.  When I have finished my inspections, I use the rest of the day to prepare inspection reports for my clients.

On Monday, I follow-up with agents re: applications submitted from Saturday’s open homes and help my clients to secure their new home and celebrate.  Very few homes come on the market on Monday as the property managers usually use Monday to process applications.  Inspection times for the week are usually not posted until Tuesday or Wednesday because the property managers do not know what is still going to be available for lease until the weekend’s applications have been processed.  There are generally no open homes on a Monday because the agents are busy processing applications.

Tuesday generally brings new properties to the market.  Tuesday is a busy day for me, searching and evaluating new homes that have come on the market in preparation for open homes on Wednesday / Thursday.  By Tuesday, homes that remain available from Saturday’s inspections will start to have open home times scheduled for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  Wednesday and Thursday are the most popular days for mid-week inspections. 

Wednesday and Thursday are again busy days as I have inspections and reports, ongoing property searches and property research / evaluation. 

Very little happens on a Friday in terms of new homes coming on the market, but this is again a busy day for me as I continue to evaluate homes ahead of Saturday’s inspections.  On Friday, I confirm my inspection schedule for Saturday (my busiest day).
